Already in the process of nailing down someone to play an antagonist for Tom Holland's titular hero, director Jon Watts and the Spider-Man: Homecoming team is also looking to find him some friends. Laura Harrier and Dope's Tony Revolori have now joined the cast.

With the new film – written by Vacation duo John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein – looking to blend superhero action with the feel of a John Hughes high school movie, the story forgoes the usual origin gubbins, especially since Spidey is up and swinging when we initially meet him in Captain America: Civil War.

Harrier, best known across the pond for drama series One Life To Live, is, according to The Wrap, a "significant part" in Peter Parker's life. One of his famous loves? No one is saying yet. And as for Revolori, who has also appeared in The Grand Budapest Hotel and The 5th Wave, is Manuel, one of Pete's friends.

Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige is on board to produce alongside former Sony boss Amy Pascal under the terms of the rights-sharing agreement between the companies and the aim is to have Homecoming on screens on July 7, 2017.
